After way too much time spent fighting Avant/IE, I've given up. I just installed Orca and now I'm kicking myself for not doing it months ago. So far, it's not locking up, which is a major improvement.

I've got everything figured out except copying my search terms over to Orca.

Is there any way to copy these over or do I have to retype them in? (there's hundreds of 'em)

Thanks.

You do know that avant and orca are going to merge and the faster the better . :)

Is it going to be based on the IE engine, as is Avant? If so, I don't need anymore headaches. I think there is something wacky with my installed IE8 that Avant isn't happy with, so I'm not going back that way. So far, the Firefox platform seems to be working just fine.

For now, I'd just like to know where the search terms are located and can I copy them?

No.

I'm refering to the terms/keywords you type into a search/dialog box, as in Craigslist. These get saved somewhere and it would be nice just to import them from Avant to Orca.

Been there... Not the one I'm looking for. That one seems to be more for Google.

Looks like I'm just gonna have to type all of them in.

Thanks.
